If the hydrogen electron will start to slowly drag the proton, big hydrogen based molecules may break at lower temperatures

I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy...

Hi LQ;

The electron is only 1 / 1850 of the mass of that proton in the nucleus. Pretty hard for it to drag it around.

It moves oh so much faster though.

I dont actualy know what happens if the proton starts spinning or something

Total protonic reversal! How can we prevent it?

Not much we can do about this, would it happen

Maybe, but it is not likely. Why would it happen? Think of it like the earth and sun. Sun is the nucleus and the earth is the electron. Both of them are spinning and they are stable.

Don't forget that Hydrogen is the only element (in stable state) whereby

the number of neutrons is zero or even less than the number of protons.

So Hydrogen is in a group of its own, all by itself.

You are forgetting that hydrogen gas also contains deuterium and tritium. Isotopes of hydrogen that have an equal or greater number of neutrons.
